Sketching vs. prototyping-"Rough sketches"

Rough sketches are different than crudely-drawn diagrams. In fact,
many rough sketches are very well drawn:

I¹ve been doing concept sketches for a lot of years, and the majority of
these examples are not rough sketches, no matter what the authors or Google
call them. The first example on Jared¹s site ( of the space station ) is
more like it.

Current Methodologies vs. Technology (Was: Sketching vs. Prototyping: Bill Buxton)

I definitely understand that, but what if you can actually build multiple
working prototypes in the same amount of time it takes to make the sketches?

Time for a rant:

There seems to be an underlying sense that everyone's goal is to build 1
perfect solution, but with the Web we can build multiple solutions and run
them all at the same time.

Nice 3D interaction: SketchUp

Hi all,
Just watched a movie of a tool called SketchUp. Maybe I've been asleep, but
I hadn't heard of it before. I post it here because it looked to me like
they have achieved some nice, natural direct-manipulation in 3D.
